Many snowstorms have passed since I last posted and I have been doing a bunch of quilting. I know that there are at least three of you checking this blog on a regular basis and I hope there are more of you out there. My six month design class started and the first class asked us to use the Golden Rule (~1:1.6 ratio) and the Fibonnai sequence (1;2;3;5;8;13;21 etc). i just kept staring out my living room window at the snowstorms and decided that is what I would do. So, a moderately successful, somewhat dismal picture of snow and what things look like in the snow. It was not a great success in the design class.
But I have my second design class this week and the topic was lines and shapes. Cannot seem to get myself away from my chessies so there is a dog in the piece. If you think fall season and a calm piece then I succeeded with this.
I did finish one of my chessie pieces for the national speciality in the fall (hopefully they will be donated and auctioned). It is about 20" wide and about 55" long. I love it and hope I will be able to give it up when it is time.
My Ceil dog has an internal tumor - please send him good thoughts as they try to figure out what is wrong.
